We specialize in Automatic Opening Knives for Collectors and those who depend on them for their profession. We have been selling automatic knives before there was an "internet" and helped design and distribute Benchmade's first automatic, which is now called the AFO. We worked with Al Mar and distributed his automatic;the GPA (General Purpose Auto). Worked with A.A. Sanders and Mike "Whiskers" Allen and helped them to introduce their coil fired scale release autos, and have seen many makers, dealers, and companies come and go over the years, however AIK has been and will always be the original and best automatic/switchblade dealer.

We have one of the Largest Selections of Automatic, One Hand Opening, Switchblade, Gravity Fed and Unique Opening Knives available and offer the collector and professional more Exclusive Automatic Knives than all the others dealers combined.
